Siberian Crane

Saving Siberian Cranes

It’s estimated that under 4,000 Siberian cranes, an endangered species, remain in the wild. Through hard work and technical expertise, Zoo New England has offered a successful breeding ground for these rare birds.

Franklin Park Zoo is home to eight of the 23 Siberian cranes currently in captivity in four North American institutions accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The first of Franklin Park Zoo’s 10 hatches was in 1999, making it the first zoo in North America to have successfully bred this endangered species. Learn more about Siberian cranes.
